Directed by Thomas Schlamme. With Allison Janney, Bradley Whitford, Rob Lowe, Janel Moloney. Stage version of the season 3 episode "Hartsfield's Landing"
An apt episode to be doing for this particular purpose, but of course almost all of them could be really.
Incredibly well done and well-directed as a stage version. Definitely not something easy to do, though it also wasn’t quite live either. I’ll want to revisit the original again and then do a side-by-side comparison. A few smaller characters are definitely missing and the Josh/Donna relationship has shifted massively–in part because she no longer reads as “Bambi”.
It was a nice touch to have Ainsley return for stage directions, but I suspect that it may have been because Stockard didn’t want to come back for it?
